constitutional crisis in terms of the presidency. >>> plus the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. we start with breaking news out of syria this morning. the syrian government has reached an agreement with the united nations to allow inspectors full access to any site of any purported chemical weapons attack. syria's deputy foreign minister says -- the pentagon has prepositioned four warships with armed cruise missiles pore the region. chris, this is big news, this is why obviously inspectors got there, they want to get to the bottom of what really happened. think they can now? >> it is possible, we know that secretary of state john kerry was speaking with his counterpart the foreign minister over the weekend. those two did not speak very often, so that was significant. if they are able to find actual evidence, this could certainly change the calculation for the obama administration. we know the pentagon has been updating it's target list for potential air strikes in syria, looking at not only command a and control fa stillities. they have also moved warships, they have added a third
to be honest, and you might hear a helicopter flying past me, i think washington's reaction has been to the september where cairo and the generals may have concluded washington believes its relationship is important strategical strategically, but they haven't decided to alter it after a week whereas many as 1,000 lost their lives. they need that relationship to keep israel secure in the region, as well. and what we've seen so far from washington is a cancellation of military exercise. that's frankly tokenistic in many ways. the european union expressing outrage saying we'll urgently review relations, asking all sides to refrain from violence. so western powers seemingly stepping forward to say we're very upset about this and we may consider changing our actions in the future, but really the violence and crackdown here which has so many aghast haven't significantly changed the character of western egyptian relations. >> thanks, nick. >>> it does not come more complicated than egypt. president obama summed it up in a single sentence. >>> while we want to sustain our relationship with e
there's a new paradigm in politics. that actually has washington very uncomfortable. it has politicians in both parties very uncomfortable. and that new paradigm is the rise of the grassroots. the ability of grassroots activists to demand of their elected officials, they do the right thing. and i believe, if we see a grassroots tsunami, that is going to cause republicans and democrats to listen to the people. but it's going to take a tsunami? >> it is going to take a tsunami and i'm going to do everything i can to encourage that tsunami. >> what about you lost. you lost, this has been put into law. this is the argument on the other side, it's already law. why not just get on board and try it. >> because it's not working and it's hurting americans. and by the way, the people it's hurting the most? are the most vulnerable among us. the people who are losing their jobs are young people, hispanics or african-americans or single moms. i don't think that's fair, i don't think that's right. >> let me move you on to a couple of political issues. one of them is do you see yourself supporting inc
commander, commander of the armed forces. he did an interview, i believe it was with "the washington post." he had this to say about the u.s. "you left the egyptians. you turned your back on the egyptians, and they won't forget that." he's talking about the fact the egyptians didn't like the morsi government, and you did nothing to try to correct the morsi government. this does not sound like the groups is listening to the u.s. having any leverage with them. >> he'd better start listening if he wants this relationship. the relationship between the united states and egypt is very important to us. it's the center of the arab world in general. >> it doesn't seem like it's very important to them, though. >> it's important to people around in the streets demanding a better life to the general. democracy is messy. the morsi government did screw up big time. they went down the islamic cultural road rather than creating jobs, and the military had to intervene. the one thing that's not sustainable is a military takeover of egypt. they promised new elections. they need to deliver. the muslim brothe
which seems to be mirrored by decision makers in washington that the washington/cairo relationship is too strategically important for the united states for something like this, grave as horrifying as it's been, to necessarily derail it. we've seen cursory cancellation of a military exercise and potential moves in the future, but no stark measure to suggest a fundamental change in the character of the relationship, candy. >> nick paton walsh, thank you. >> reporter: thank you, candy. >>> while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets. >> the president cancelled next month's joint military exercises with egypt, but did not cut off u.s. aid, not yet. his equation is this. however popular a military coup ousting an elected government followed by a deadly crackdown on protesters run counter for the values the u.s. espouses to the world. still, so much rides in the balance of what happens next. for decades, egypt has been an imperfect, undemocratic but critical u.s. ally in the midd
